Is a 600W power supply ok for a GTX 770? And would an I5-3470 bottleneck this gpu?

Bottleneck = no

There is 3 600 watt versions of the 600

1=hec = junk

2 =channel well = fair at best < I think you have this one tr2 600

3=FSP= ok tr2 600p

I still don't care for the PSU's they make , most are not very good.I recommend replacement.

I would get a decent unit from Seasonic , XFX , Antec , or Corsair not the CX Series.
